Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet – Part 3

Posted on January 16, 2012

 

Amy Poehler in Naeem Khan

We’re not loving the color on her, but it’s such an improvement over her normal choices that we’ll shut up about it.

 

Connie Britton in Vintage [as in, Salvation Army  Vintage]

Y’know, if you want to flout the conventions that insist one must use a stylist and wear a borrowed ensemble that costs a hundred grand, we’re fine with that. Really. But this is still a formal event and attendees are still expected to show up dressed appropriately. What we hate about the message here (assuming she’s sending one, which is a safe bet) is that it unwittingly reinforces the idea that to look good you have to wear really expensive clothes. Wear something vintage or even homemade if you want, but show up dressed appropriately for the venue. Very disappointing.

 

Elizabeth McGovern in Armani

She looks almost disturbingly like Snow White. Pretty, though.

 

Emily Deschanel in Max Azria

This is a little too Beverly Sills for us. She’s too young for dresses like this.

 

Emma Stone in Lanvin

Truly gorgeous. Great colors on her. Love that belt.

 

Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci

Serving up stunning drag ball fabulousness. Green was another of the colors last night, as was yellow.

 

Jane Lynch in David Meister

It’s not going to inspire “Huzzah!”s from us for being drop dead chic, but it’s perfectly suited to her and the color is lovely.

 

Jodie Foster in Armani

The bodice on this was insanely stiff. From the side it looked like a lampshade. We can’t say we love this dress. The color’s beautiful but the whole thing does look rather like she wrapped her shower curtain around her. And that black satin peeptoe is making us sad.

 

Julianne Moore in Chanel Couture

We’re not loving the shape of that skirt, but this is an improvement for her, so we’ll take it. Great earrings.

 

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli

The bodice is basically a basket o’ tits and the color’s non-existent, but the lady looks pretty spectacular nonetheless.

 

Kelly MacDonald in Lorena Sarbu

We really like the downplayed makeup on her because she’s suited to it and we love the colors of this dress, but we can’t help feeling she looks a bit … unfinished somehow. Maybe more dramatic earrings would have helped.

 

Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen

It was maybe a bit much for a job that mostly consisted of sitting down, but we like the shape and the color on her. The hair, not so much.

 

Maria Menounos in Blumarine

Stunning color, but she doesn’t look like she can breathe. In fact, we’re pretty sure if she took a sip of water, you’d be able to watch it travel down inside her.

 

Melissa McCarthy in Badgley Mischka

We think it’s great that Badgley Mischka made her a gown, but that color is awful on her and we’re sorry, this dress is nothing but a cliche;  a collection of plus-sized elements long considered overdone and not particularly flattering.  There are better, more stylish ways to dress her shape.

 

Mireille Enos in Naeem Khan

It’s gorgeous, but it’s SO not her color and the red slash of lipstick looks terrible.

 

Missi Pyle in Junko Yoshioka

Pretty color, but dull otherwise.

 

Nicole Richie in Julien Macdonald

Absolutely hated the weird hair but we can’t knock that dress.

 

Paula Patton in Monique Lhuillier

We loved all the yellows, but this one might be just a bit too crayola for our tastes. Besides, her endless vamping on the RC last night got annoying very quickly.

 

Penelope Ann Miller in Pamella Roland

Decent dress, but this gal needs a hair consult, STAT.

 

Salma Hayek in Gucci

She’s too short and busty for this dress. It cuts her in half and makes her look stumpy. This is a dress designed for a 6-foot woman who weighs 90 pounds, dear. Didn’t you get the memo?

 

Shailene Woodley in Marchesa

She looks fabulous. We’ve been hard on her lately, but she pulled it together here.

 

Tina Fey in Oscar de la Renta

Standing in a hole.
